From the camcorder to paypal... so many steps

You know the drill. Shoot the video. Upload the video to your desktop. Edit it. Compress it. Post it. Wait for it to get approved. Wait some more. Anyone clicking? Paypal?

Here's a company worth spotlighting that's trying to simplify one piece of that. Video Egg is more of a "back-end play" than a portal. The company has a downloadable browser-based tool that facilitates the grabbing, encoding, and posting. Something that would integrate nicely with Revver if they figured it out.

Most of Revver's earlier adopters won't leave their favorite desktop editing software, so I don't see this as much for us as the less sophisticated user that has a camcorder and wants a friend to see it easily.

Here's a nice review of VideoEgg from a blog I just found called "Video on the Web."

P.S. Here's hoping that VideoEgg doesn't take a motion on me for using its logo!

Thanks for the pointer to the Egg. Did you notice the Yolk Yellow on their site design? :-)

Good enough to lick the monitor.

I tried out the upload tool on the EGG site, and surprisingly enough, it was really easy and took literally less than a minute to upload some video off a cell phone. Hmmmm. I see some possibilities here, especially with cell phone videos ready to explode on the scene.

Thanks for trying it. You're right about the cell phone explosion. I'm guessing that cell-phone software will eventually (if not already) allow you to bring your video to common video websites without even needing a computer.
